Srinagar, Apr 02: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senior leader and MLC, Zaffar Iqbal Manhas Sunday called for creating spaces for intellectual growth and dignified job opportunities for the youth of Jammu and Kashmir.
“Our youth are talented, awakened and emancipated. But, they lack avenues of growth and progress. We must work to provide them an enabling environment to grow,” he said while addressing various poll campaign meetings in Kandi areas of Shopian constituency.
Manhas said unless the issues and concerns of youth are addressed the situation on ground will remain the same and it will continuously hamper their intellectual pursuits. He said youth are the future of any society and our entire focus and energies should be directed towards them, so that they will get inspiration and hope.
The senior PDP leader said the government led by Mehbooba Mufti realises the importance of involving the youth in meaningful activities and is keen to work on that front. “Various initiatives and programmes have already been formulated by the government to make the youth partners in progress. The CM is working on pro-youth agenda and she needs support of everyone,” he added. (KNS)
